Is it Beneficial to Give to Charity?

People who give generously will usually have more influence than other people who don’t. Board members of non-profit organizations are more likely give generously than others who do not have a financial investment in the particular cause. These board members will be better able to influence decision making of the organization due to the demonstrative investment and interest in the cause. Whether you are a board member or not, when you give to a charity organization, you will definitely have more influence.  

The Benefits
When you give to charity, it not only benefits you, but it also benefits the receivers. Giving to charity should be enough reason to convince you to give. If you want to be convinced more, let’s take a closer look at the benefits.
  • As it relates to charity giving, you should consider how much it will help the community become an improved place to live. It helps to raise people’s standard of living and in turn, raise your own standard of living.
  • Most charity givers are motivated by feeling good about their giving than keeping their resources all to themselves. Many people have discovered over the years that there is a satisfaction that comes with helping people in need.
  • The people that witness the benefits of charity giving are motivated and encouraged to do the same. It has a viral effect for others to follow.
Tax Deduction
When you give to charity, you are rewarded by the government with a reduction in your tax liability. Many business owners already know this and because of their yearly commitment to one charity organization or the other are benefiting from taxable deductions. Donations sent to charity organizations can greatly reduce taxable income.

For some people, becoming a charity donor opens up an amazing opportunity to learn more about the issues that plague the community. It also shows the integral part that the organization plays to make things better. There are many individuals who prefer to be educated about the charity first before giving. Giving to a worthy cause will oftentimes reveal new details about the organization and provides the donor with more information about various social issues such as homelessness, mental illness, poverty, or hunger.

Social Connections
The most essential benefit of giving a donation of time or money is the chance to make connections and build relationships with passionate individuals. You get to meet new people and get more involved in the particular issues that are being represented. It will always give you the feeling of generosity and kindness.

Start at Your Comfort Level
No matter how much you give to charity, it is better than not giving at all. Begin at the level that you feel most comfortable and increase your donation as you feel necessary. As you notice the good that your gift is doing, you will be reassured to give even more.
